New at HSSL: Adjustable desks!

For those of you who prefer to study or work at a standing desk, you’ll be glad to know that we’ve installed 24 adjustable desks throughout HSSL.

The desks are located in the following spaces:

  • 6th floor, McLennan: 8 adjustable desks in the corners of the floor
  • 5th floor, McLennan: 8 adjustable desks in the corners of the floor
  • 2nd floor, McLennan: 6 adjustable desks along the glass wall to the left of the elevators
  • Ground floor, Redpath Library Building – 2 adjustable group study tables

Drop by next time you are on campus, give them a try, and let us know what you think!

We would like to thank the Arts Undergraduate Society for their generous support in funding this Library improvement initiative.

June 19 – 22: Entrance to McLennan Library Building temporarily closed for repairs


The main entrance to the Humanities & Social Sciences Library (i.e. the McLennan Library Building doors off of the terrace) will be closed from Monday, June 19 through Thursday, June 22 inclusively in order to repair the grills and flooring at the front entrance. During this time period, temporary access to the Humanities & Social Sciences Library will be provided through the Redpath Library Building doors. The McLennan doors and the interior stairwell from University Services on the street level will be cordoned off and signage will be used to direct user to the Redpath doors.


We apologize for the inconvenience and thank you for your patience and cooperation.
